African Ancestry Family Reunions

Sierra Leone

African Ancestry Family Reunions in Sierra Leone are specially curated all-inclusive birthright journeys. Now that your genetic ancestry has been found in Sierra Leone, join us for an authentic, culturally immersive experience back home. We have worked in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, local communities, businesses and cultural organizations, to create an unforgettable reconnection to your family’s roots. This journey goes far and beyond your average tourist trip! We will honor our ancestors, learn our histories and give back to our brothers and sisters in Sierra Leone with lots of love, laughter and respect.

We’re receiving calls and emails daily about our next AAFR to Sierra Leone since the citizenship ceremony in April 2021. We’re currently waiting for more information from the Ministry of Tourism and Cultural Affairs and Monuments and Relics Commission for details on the next citizenship ascension program tentatively scheduled for late 2021 in November/December.

Check the following for information on requirements as of April 2021.

African Ancestry will notify all customers by email when we open registration for our next Sierra Leone African Ancestry Family Reunion very soon.

Thanks for your patience.
